The fact it's that time of year, mixed with the fact it's a slow Sunday on the blogs, have sponsored this post. That and I love a good photo.
The deadline for entries in this year's National Geographic Photo Contest is November 30. Photographers of all skill levels (last year more than 16,000 images submitted by photographers from 130 countries) enter photographs in three categories: Nature, People and Places. The photographs are judged on creativity and photographic quality by a panel of experts. There is one first place winner in each category and a grand prize winner as well going home with 10k.
